Okay, so I kind of haven’t had internet for two weeks, came down with tonsillitis and started Romeo and Juliet rehearsals- hence the extreme lack of posting! Expect a flood now though… I have a lot to say 😉
I’ve always worked alone when it comes to Paganism- at first it was because I was twelve and so it was kind of necessary. However, as time’s gone on and I’ve started to dip my toes into the Pagan community I’ve realised that I much prefer working solitary.
I think I like the fact that I can have more control over things when I work alone, and that it makes for a much more intimate relationship between myself and my Gods, it also makes me feel that I can do anything and that my faith can weather any storm.
Obviously different things work for different people- so this is only my view, but I feel that to me working in a coven means relying on other people, and people are fickle and unreliable. The Gods are not.
I think for me it all ties in with the fact that I’m a very private person- that was one of the first things I said to my Go To Guy- it’s something that people need to understand about me, I have this little world that I live in, I mean, it’s one of the main reasons why I blog, I like sharing it with people, just on an anonymous basis 😉
The relationship between myself and my Gods is the most incredibly intimate thing. They know everything about me, so for me the idea of sharing that with other people feels incredibly exposing and wrong.
But each to their own…
’til next time,
